Spice-Rubbed Salmon with Cucumber Relish

    The rub was outstanding!! I agree with the other posters who said they would make it in bulk to put on other meats. I also thought the relish was fabulous. Very easy to make and very fast. I didn't have a problem with the spices burning but I'm fairly certain my oven doesn't heat to the proper temp. Served with angel hair pasta and a salad.

    This was a simple and delicious recipe. After removing the salmon from the oven, I brushed a hint of maple syrup on it. Served with rice pilaf. Everyone loved it.

    Good, but I've enjoyed other Cooking Light salmon rubs better. Such as "Barbecue Roasted Salmon".

    Simply delicious! The salmon was fab. I added a peach to the relish and that made it outstanding.

    The rub and salmon work really well together.

    I love salmon, and this is one of my favorite recipes. The portion sizes are just right, and the flavors mix beautifully. I use only a TB of minced red onion because I find raw onion hard to digest, but otherwise kept all the ingredients the same. The fresh mint and the capers really brighten the whole dish. I roast the fish for 10 min at 425 instead of broil and have made it with skin on and skin off--not much difference, really. First time, I put out chive-buttermilk mashed potatoes & steamed green beans; tonight, I made couscous and steamed asparagus. All were good.
